Hey Wildcat Fans, this is Paige Weber, the new writer for your Arizona Volleyball team. Yes, the hypothetical torch has been passed and I am more than excited to be your inside connection to the wonderful world we live every day. I am sad to see Brooke move onto the real world, but eager to take over for her. She did such an awesome job re-telling all the fun we get to experience, so I am hoping that in time you will all find a special place for Paige's Page as well. I will try my best to make this fun along the way!!
With that said, It is our, and hopefully your, favorite time of year again. The beginning of August always represents the start of the most fun part of our year. Don't get me wrong, off- season is great, and we actually have a chance to have some down time. But the real fun starts when the season begins, and a season can't begin without that infamous time known as.......drumroll please..... DOUBLE DAYS. That is right my friends, this past Monday marked the start of some of the busiest weeks of our lives, but of course, we live to do it.
The term 'double days' refers to the time when we have two practices a day for a little under two weeks, in this case we end on August 22. So up to now we have had 5 practices, and we can't wait til the first match when we get to try out all the things we have been working on. Oh yeah, today we also had picture day! HAHA... yep just like in high school, today was full of primping before we took our headshots for the website and our poster pictures. (Look for those coming out soon!) Everyone was looking beautiful and smiling big for you guys which makes picture day really fun...and the fact that we all practice in full make-up afterward makes it a really interesting day!
Well I know this first post was REALLY long HAHA, but I hope I caught you guys up to where we are right now. I'll keep you guys updated with all the ups and downs, and of course the hilarity that ensues when all of us get together!! Shout out to Ellen, the newest addition to our team, and THE lone true freshman. Don't worry, we will take good care of her Mommy and Daddy Querrey!! Well I am out!! We have Weights and Two Practices in the morning!! Until Next Time, This is # 34, signing out!!
